At the time he was hired, I stated that I believed he was hired because Jimmy wanted a "beta male" coach who be a "yesman" to him. Kinda like Del Harris, Randy Pfund, Kurt Rambis and the other "yesmen" coaches that were hired before Phil came here. Adelman definitely isn't in the "yesman" category. It may work for Jimmy, but you can't have a "beta male" as a coach with this team. It doesn't work.
